Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In 2008, about a decade after its original theatrical debut, Writer and Director Mark Christopher assembled a bootleg Director's Cut of the film, with forty-five minutes of never before seen footage, and unofficially screened it at New York's Outfest around July-August 2008. This version reinstated the blatant promiscuity and bisexuality of Ryan Phillippe's character, as well as the film's core love triangle between Phillippe, Salma Hayek, and Breckin Meyer which the Miramax studio forced him to cut from the original release.
